Powered by AA Batteries

Check out astonishing Kite Optics APC 50 Image-Stabilized Binoculars!  Experience  KT3.0 image stabilization technology through Kite Image Stabilization's most powerful 50mm ED optical system. Designed for precision and sharpness, these binoculars redefine observation in every way.

Engineered for Use in Challenging Conditions

Engineered for resilience, the Kite APC50 binoculars feature an IPX 7 waterproof rating, sealed electronics, and nitrogen gas filling. These binoculars can withstand submersion up to 1 meter and thrive in the most humid regions on Earth, delivering unmatched performance in challenging conditions.

Wide Angle View

The APC 18×50, boasting an enormous 61° apparent field of view, complies with ISO standards for wide-angle view binoculars, solidifying its status as an authentic wide-field binocular. Step into a broader, more immersive world with the APC 18×50.

KDGS-2 processor and KT 3.0 software

In 2024, Kite Optics unveiled the second generation of the KDGS processor, propelling image stabilization performance to an unprecedented level. With the APC 50, you’ll encounter an unmatched level of immersion, feeling as though you’re right there with the object you’re observing. Thanks to the increased precision of the KDGS-2 processor, The Kite APC50 takes a significant leap forward. KT3.0 software delivers a unique viewing experience that mirrors the cognitive and visual patterns of the mind, effectively making the sensation of looking through binoculars vanish.

These high-quality optical binoculars with 18X magnification and 50mm ED optics will provide you with glorious well-resolved and stable images under the most challenging conditions. The Kite Optics 18x50 APC stabilized binoculars bring you the latest technology in binocular image stabilization, with high angular range correction control for movement. There are other stabilized binoculars on the market, but none of them compare to this. This Kite Optics APC Stabilized Binocular offers true military-grade stabilization performance for viewing from moving vehicles, boats, aircraft, etc.

The all-important performance difference is the correction angle. Most of today’s stabilized binoculars offer a correction angle from 0.5° to 1°. That corresponds to a correction of 0.8 to 1.7 meters at a distance of 100 meters. Trembling of the hand, observing on a windy day, or being out of breath after hiking will easily cause image instability that is larger than these values. The KITE APC stabilized binoculars feature a new technology that allows the instrument to correct the image stability by 2°, that's more than conventional stabilization technology. This allows perfectly stable images not only from your trembling hand, but even from a moving driving car or a boat.

ED/HD Optical System

Experience unparalleled contrast with the APC 50, featuring an ED/HD optical system. Witness a stabilized image where chromatic aberration is effectively minimized, ensuring that every view is razor sharp and true to life. The APC 50 is your portal to a stable and distortion-free viewing experience, where precision meets perfection.

KITE MHR Advance+ Coating System

The APC binocular’s optical system, equipped with ED lenses and treated with Kite Optics’ MHR Advance+ coatings, achieves a remarkable 86% light transmission. Combined with ‘Enhanced Brightness Perception by Stability’ , this optical masterpiece excels in low-light conditions, delivering unparalleled clarity, vividness, and precision.

High Tech Angle Power Control (APC) Image Stabilization

This very compact sized and light instrument is also packed with intelligent features. The electronics are powered by two AA-batteries, and will operate the system for 38 hours. But to make sure not a second is lost, the Kite Optics APC binoculars are equipped with sensors that will automatically put the electronics to sleep mode when you are not viewing. When the instrument is in vertical position, hanging from your neck or standing on a surface, it goes to sleep. From the second it comes to a more horizontal position, when viewing, the stabilization system auto-kicks in. No switching of buttons, no accidental battery drain. A timer function makes sure it switches off completely after 90 minutes. And a low battery indicator will tell you well in advance when new batteries are needed.

Easy to Carry & Hold

Although APC stabilized binoculars look different, they are just as easy to use as any pair of standard binoculars. The essence of this instrument is of course its stabilizing capability. This model (the KOST18A) offers an amazing 18x magnification spec as well as stabilizing the image. 

Easy to carry, to hold, easy to use, and with beautiful image quality, and with APC Stabilization technology which is 6 times better than most conventional stabilized binoculars can offer, the Kite Optics 18x50 APC Stabilized Binoculars will amaze and delight you every time you view through them and see what you want with utter clarity.
